    Nasa photographs rectangular iceberg

    Attachment 39342

    Nasa has released a striking photo of a rectangular iceberg floating in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica.

    The US space agency said the object's sharp angles and flat surface suggested it had recently broken away from an ice shelf.

    The edges are still pointed, and have not yet been worn down by the ocean waves.

    The picture was taken last week by scientists on a Nasa research plane.

    Can you say "photo shopped?"

    I've been meaning to ask this. Was it ever confirmed that the tweet of Buzz Aldrin saying that "we are all in trouble and that he has seen evil itself" was real or fake??

    The tweet was "crafted", something that he had said that was taken out of context, had a picture of a mountain in a rough pyramid shape added. The actual "tweet" that was circulated never actually appeared on his feed, from what I recall. Sorry I don't have links.

    Not sure that is exactly true ... many crystals form very specific angles, and some of those are right angles.




    Bismuth also forms into right angles ...

    Here's the video!


    The iceberg is actually this shape. The widely-publicized photo has been cropped a little (and, it has to be said, yes, possibly photoshopped to 'trim' it) to make it look slightly more unusual than it actually is.

    It is still almost unbelievably straight but with just enough irregularities to make it seem plausible.

    Nature is a master and its many works are masterpieces...

    Well shiver me timbers, not photoshopped--entirely at least.

    I'll wager there are no "perfect" or "exact" right angles in nature.

    Well, if you want to get really technical, no "exact" right angles exist anywhere, if your resolution is high enough. Similar to how Canada's shoreline is said to be 25,760kms -- but, if you measured it in 1 mm increments, it's probably actually like 500,000kms -- every evaluation depends on a specific perspective and specific resolution for its result. Something humans often don't consider and partly how we get locked into a rigid experience of our universe.

    Aldrin definitely knows more than he is saying outright and he seems like a man who wants to tell the truth, but who can't.

    In one interview, Buzz was ambushed by a guy who had evidence the the lunar footage was faked. Aldrin's response wasn't to deny it outright, but he told the guy to ask the administrators at NASA about it. He kept saying, "You're talking to the wrong guy," and something like "We were just travelers..."

    Buzz also famously said on live TV that there is a "monolith" on one of the moons of Mars that 'God put there' (paraphrasing), if you prefer to think of it that way.

    Same Buzz Aldrin that traveled to Antarctica not long after Trump won in 2016, along with a bunch of other high profile people who made the trip around the same time, including then-Secretary of State (2nd most powerful person in US executive branch) John Kerry, and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.

    Yes, just like these natural stairs and platform at the Yonaguni site off the coast of Japan. Also somehow shaped by natural forces into right angles and rectangles.

    I'd be willing to bet that Graham Handcock is in that picture lol. He did so many dives at Yonaguni. Something like over 200. He is one of the biggest proponents of the site being artificial.

    Still creepy, no matter what way I look at it. Anything that talks about evil, takes out of context about evil, or tries warn people about evil, I pay attention. Not to say this wasn't just a big joke, because maybe it was!

    Then Kerry stopping on the way back to New Zealand to see PM John Key, and Key shortly resigning thereafter.

    One of those events that has been logged in the back of my mind To Be Addressed when more information becomes available.

    At the moment it smells like a call to the big boss's office's for a talking to about restructuring the business with the meeting being held with representatives from politics, religion and science. Question is whom was spoken to and what was discussed?

    Sometimes it would be great to be a fly on the wall.

    MORE ANTARCTIC STRANGENESS: a gigantic cavity growing under West Antarctica

    From Joseph Farrell:

    A stunning new void has been revealed amidst this massive vanishing act, and it's a big one: a gigantic cavity growing under West Antarctica that scientists say covers two-thirds the footprint of Manhattan and stands almost 300 metres (984 ft) tall.

    This huge opening at the bottom of the Thwaites Glacier – a mass infamously dubbed the "most dangerous glacier in the world" – is so big it represents an overt chunk of the estimated 252 billion tonnes of ice Antarctica loses every year.

    The Thwaites Glacier actually holds in neighboring glaciers and ice masses further inland. If its buttressing force disappeared, the consequences could be unthinkable, which is why it's considered such a pivotal natural structure in the Antarctic landscape.

    Just how long it will stay, nobody knows – which is why scientists are right now embarking on a major expedition to learn more about Thwaites.
